S’more cookie pops

by Shoshana on July 9, 2014 · 3 comments

This last week we went camping at Big Basin Redwoods State Park. I love camping because it allows us to be completely unplugged for a few days. With no cell reception there is no way to even check email and it is nice to have nothing to do but sit around the campfire and talk. […]

Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies

by Shoshana on June 18, 2014 · 3 comments

As much as I love making big complicated desserts, I find that lately when I ponder what dessert to make I tend to turn towards something simpler, like cookies. They are easy to keep in the freezer and make a great for a last minute treat. Also, summer doesn’t feel like the time for complicated […]

Gluten-free Lemon Bars

by Shoshana on June 10, 2014 · 4 comments

I have been making a lot of gluten-free lemon bars lately. Every week I ask my son what gluten-free shabbat treat he would like for synagogue and almost every week he answers “lemon bars.” Occasionally he asks for lemon cupcakes, but usually it is lemon bars. This is the same kid who has asked for […]

Even though my kids have a couple more weeks of school it is already starting to feel a lot like summer. We can stop at the fruit stand on the way home from school to get local stone fruit (and my kitchen looks a murder scene from all the cherries I have been pitting to […]

Orange Chocolate Chip Mandelbrot

by Shoshana on April 8, 2014 · 4 comments

Mandelbrot (or mandelbread as we call them) have a special place in our family’s heart. Mandelbrot are basically the Jewish version of biscotti. They are a similar twice baked cookie, but they have a bit of a softer texture than the Italian version because they have more fat in them. My husband’s grandmother was known […]

Grain-Free Hamentashen

by Shoshana on March 7, 2014 · 5 comments

Holidays are a time where we all tend to let loose a little. Especially when it comes to food. It is a good excuse to have that one extra cookie or an extra serving of cake. I believe there is nothing wrong with occasionally overindulging on special occasion. The traditional foods we associate with each […]

My oldest son is a great help when I am trying to brainstorm fun ideas for new recipes. He has a great sense of flavors and isn’t shy about asking for crazy or over the top combinations. When I asked him what flavor hamentashen I should make this year his answer was a resounding “poppy”. […]

Hot Tamale Snickerdoodles

by Shoshana on November 12, 2013 · 7 comments

In keeping with my assertion that fall is the perfect season to enjoy cinnamon flavored treats I wanted to share another cinnamon dessert to enjoy throughout these fall months. Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies. They are perfect eaten by themselves, but are even better when paired with a nice mug of apple cider […]

Now that the fall holidays are over and the baby is almost two months old (when did that happen!) I am hoping to carve out a bit more time for blogging again. Since time is a bit on the short side these days I wanted to jump back into the swing of things with some […]

Sometimes I get a recipe idea in my head and I just can’t let it go until I get it right. That is what happened with these hamentashen. I was trying to think of new creative hamentashen ideas to post this year and the first thing that popped into my mind was “chocolate chip cookie […]
